LOOPY HD: VARYING BEHAVIOR with or without AUDIOBUS
Hi all, I create loops with beatboxing and harmonicas, and have been using Loopy for a while in a simple way - first with the iRig headphone input and more recently with the Zoom U-24 audio interface. In this direct audio setup I can stop and start the whole loop session instantly with the pause/play symbol on the bar. That's great - I use this a lot to get the 'shots' effect.
Now I want to add a MIDI harmonica to my sound and have the ability to record it in Loopy (I'm using wind synth patches in Thor). The only way is linking Thor with Loopy via Audiobus. But then my live audio input from the Zoom U-24 is disabled... No problem: I just select the Zoom in the System Audio Input in Audiobus, and now the mics and MIDI harmonica can all be recorded in Loopy.
BUT now the instant start-stop looping effect that always used in the past doesn't work... After stopping the whole loop session on the Bar, when I hit Play, I have to wait till the rotating symbol reaches the top. How can I deactivate this and return to instant start while using Audiobus? I've disabled MIDI sync and tried every Track Management option I can think of. To me the 'shots' effect is a basic function of any looper, so I hope it's still possible using Audiobus. Thanks for your help!
